A new selection of artist and graphic novelist Aidan Koch's artworks includes work produced during Koch's residency in Bogotá, Colombia; illustration sketches published in The New York Times, Frieze, 8-Ball Zines Set #11; and a new edition published by Picture Room.
Well known for her elliptical comics emphasizing tone over narrative, Koch's pieces engage subtraction, silence, and space with a careful hand. She works directly and intuitively, allowing the compositions and narratives to form throughout her process then adjusts accordingly.
